I prefer the softer key sounds and mixed with Marlene’s expressive strong pipes, “I Do This For You” works as one of the better tunes here (though the lyric isn’t so great.) Not surprisingly the tune “La Disco” ends. It’s high-layered camp of keys, piano, claps, single synth lines and great clean guitar flicking. This is probably my favorite tune here, as much for the weight-y production as it reminds me of Moroder of old.
First of all, Joe’s Pup is a stellar place to attend a concert or a small intimate Q&A/listening party, which this was. Lodge’s new album 10,000 Light Years Ago (his first solo album in 38 years!) is a lush 8-song achievement. It features some signature Moody Blue-isms (as well as Lodge bringing back two old Moody’s to play on the stand-out tune “Simply Magic” a song about his grandson) as well as country-influenced numbers, wrenching love ballads and some fiddle-stomping fun. All around this is a collection of songs that Lodge assured us are about his life, but not so much a looking backward as looking into the future.

Not that I had any doubt that David Greenspan, stalwart performer/writer/creator wouldn’t handle the material as expertly as he did. Still, understanding, interpreting then speaking as well as acting text by Gertrude Stein is not an easy task. Greenspan’s spin at it Composition…Master-Pieces…Identity (running until 6/27 down at The Connelly Theater (220 East 4th Street, Manhattan) was pretty much masterful-as I say I expected it to be-but I also understood what he was on about, no easy task when it comes to Stein’s ruminations on these three subjects.

Candida Royalle went from performing before the camera (she entered the adult industry in 1974) to moving behind it in the early 80’s…way back in the day when we were all watching porn on video tape. She is a pioneer of making porn from a woman’s point of view…and is an author and adult toy maker as well. Jacky St. James is a rather new writer/director to the adult industry (though she has worked as an actress in T.V. and film, directed, as well as worked in online advertising) entering through a writing contest the company New Sensations was holding in 2010. Winning that contest she directed films for the company and even won an AVN for Best Romance Release in 2013.
